Default Am I allowed to park on a public road for as long as I like ?

I am going on holiday soon for 2 weeks and I am considering leaving my car on an unrestricted public road about a half mile away from the airport. Just wondering if there are time limits on public roads in case someone reports an abandoned car ) Unlikely I know but does anyone know if I'ts legal ? I pay my car tax so I would imagine I can park there as long as I want.

i work for the police and i know if they go out to someone reporting an abandoned car that if it is taxed and parked legally then there is nothing they can do. so as long as not parked on double yellows or anything else then you will be fine.

I was once told that NOBODY has the right to park anywhere it is a privilege not a right

Having said that what has been said above is the real life scenario police do nowt

Nosey busybodies WILL report it though happened to me recently after I parked a car outside a local shop for 1 week police came to door I asked if there was any reason I could not leave it they said no so I said go back to busybody and tell them to stop wasting everyones time

Im an Ex police officer what we normally did was check it on PNC and see if it was reported stolen. If it wasn't I'd probably call the owner and ask them to remove it if it was convenient. if it was causing an unlawful obstruction of the highway we could get it removed under the highways act 137

If it was out of the way no obstruction nothing we could do.

Would you really want to leave your car somewhere random for two weeks?
I'd never park my car on the road for a few hours let alone two weeks. Someone could nick it, smack in to it, all sorts.

When my 306 broke down going to heathrow, I had to leave on a street for two weeks, half hour away from airport.

I was worried about it, so rang local station, told them and they appreciated me informing them. They kept an eye on it for me (apparently) and car was sat there waiting for me when i got back.

Then you have to consider the poor buggers house / neighbourhood you park it in front of. All should be fine when you return apart from being keyed down your left wing.
